Tweets of the Game: MNF Edition
The Colts’ horrid start, a weird chapter of Bannergate, and a near-comeback had Twitter abuzz.
The Colts made history last night against the Carolina Panthers by becoming the first team with two turnovers in the first three minutes of the game since … the Colts of last season. The game eventually turned around as Andrew Luck led another fourth-quarter comeback attempt. A Luck interception—there were seven total turnovers in the driving rain—ended the campaign 29–26 in favor of the Panthers. Even with a 3–5 record, the Colts still sit atop the AFC S̶o̶u̶t̶h̶ Sloth with the Texans.
Check out last night’s hot takes, witty words, and the best banter on Twitter.

Our Charlotte friends touched up our 2012 Andrew Luck cover for us. Well done.

Pat McAfee for mayor?
Carolina fans trying to unveil a Wild Card banner?

This happened. #Bannergate lives on.
The rappelling protesters have now hung around longer than the Colts tonight.

I was hoping the banner was of Andrew Luck's rib x-rays.

How the hell do you get in the stadium with rapelling gear? "100 feet of rope in your clear bag? You're good"

Colts: Our basement is flooding! Grigson: We need a new pool table. Colts: *glug glug* Grigson: Easy bro, I got you. [drafts a pool table]

Grigson v. Pagano isn’t getting any better.
I credit the idiot fans rapelling with the protest banner for sparking the #Colts comeback.

The Colts became the first team under the new NFL OT rules to score first and lose.
